Format: Leather Bound
Great book, great value for money, very nice cover etc.
Therefore actually 5 stars, but totally unacceptable is the fact,
that they put these sticky, almost impossible to remove ISBN-tags on this book.
I spend have an hour on each book trying to get them off.
As a result I had scratch marks on the nice leather cover.
Totally unacceptable and unbelievable that these stupid non-removable price/ISBN tags are still in use.

HASH(0x9940d828) out of 5 stars Very nicely published and a good deal 21 Mar. 2011
By Night Owl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
Mark Twain's prose deserves more than 5 stars (were it possible), but I am rating this particular edition of his works. I first wanted to give it 4 stars (because I wish it had illustrations, and the elegant gilded border pattern on the front cover should be present on the back cover as well ). But on second thought, I am happy to give this book 5 stars because it's a really very well put-together tome.

Nice, warm brown-color bonded leather makes it a pleasure to hold the book in your hands. The weight is just right -- substantial, but no too heavy. The binding is amazing -- the book opens beautifully, and will lie flat when open. Pages are gilded all around. The acid-neutral light ivory paper is of superb quality. The type face is easy on the eyes. The margins are not too narrow. The book has classy looking marbled end-papers. And to have Mark Twain's five novels in one book for such a reasonable price is great. The novels are:

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer;
The Prince and the Pauper;
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn;
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court;
The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson.

I think that overall the Canterbury Classics collection deserves much praise. Last but not least, these books must look very beautiful together on a shelf as part of home decor.

HASH(0x967d18a0) out of 5 stars A great compilaiton by one of America's best authors 8 Jan. 2012
By madbookster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
When one thinks or speaks of Mark Twain, those truely in the know cannot help but smile as they do so. In this compilation of stories, we have some of Twain's best and most beloved works.

I purchased this as a Christmas present for my youngest daughter so that she would have a collection of stories to keep and to cherish from one of America's best loved and most famous authors. The book is leather bound and well made and will last forever if kept well.

Anyone who wants to begin a study of Twain's works cannot go wrong here. His most famous works are in the volume and it is perfect for whiling away a lazy afternoon or for chasing away the blues. It is a pity that Amercia today does not really possess such an author whose wit, wisdom and sense of social justice comes into play in a way with words.

HASH(0x967d17a4) out of 5 stars royal pain 29 Dec. 2010

The stories are classics and the book and its making very nice - the practically irremovable ISBN-Stickers from Amazon on the backside instead an insolence, the work of idiots.
HASH(0x96d98f3c) out of 5 stars Good quality. 23 Dec. 2014
By James Nunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
This is a quality made book. My preference would have been a set of individual story books, but the cost was too much. This book is heaver than I like to hold and read because it has so many stories in one book. That is not a negative, just choice that I had to make due to cost.

HASH(0x96b2400c) out of 5 stars Collectible Leather-Bound Twain Classics 25 Sept. 2010
By Jill Clardy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
This beautifully bound edition includes the most beloved of Twain's novels:

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
The Prince and the Pauper
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson

I do not intend to review those individual novels here, since if you're buying this volume of classics you probably already have read one or more of these novels. I am replacing several paperback books with this leather-bound edition, which looks much nicer on the bookshelves. These are novels that I will read over and over, and that is my criteria for books that deserve a permanent place on my crowded bookshelves.

A handsome addition to my collection of leather-bound classics at a surprisingly affordable price.
